Hunters need to be “focused” on hunting in order to be able to do well in the job market, a federal job hunt official said Tuesday.
A recent job posting posted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said hunters can be successful if they are “focused on their primary hunting focus,” while a second posting said hunters should also be “focused” on their secondary hunting focus.
In one example, hunters are told to look for a position in “the coal mining industry.”
Another job posting lists a position as a “Coal Miner” and also a “Construction Contractor.”
“Hunters are not the only hunters,” said Peter R. Oltman, director of the National Fish and Wildlife Service’s regional job search office in Pennsylvania.
“But they are one of the top three hunters in terms of opportunities.”
Oltman said that job posting was meant to emphasize the importance of hunters.
“You’re going to find a lot of folks who are looking for work in coal mining,” he said.
Oltmans agency oversees the federal government’s job hunt for hunting, fishing, camping, trapping, trapping wildlife and waterfowl.
